Why Not A Pear is committed to funding education, health and social enrichment initiatives for children. With a focus on programs that allow kids to be healthy, explore their worlds and build confidence, our goal is to create opportunities for all children to lead healthy, happy, inspired lives. Our Foundation is memorialized after Richard A. Perry, our Founder’s father. Richard was passionate about family, sports, education and serving the greater good – this foundation is a tribute to his life of dedicated community service.
Our organization was founded on the idea that allowing children access to different types of activities and learning environments empowers them and helps grow them into happier, more successful members of our community. Learn more about our work and how you can get involved.
